looking for new workouts to stay fit in the new year. come on, girl. first, these messages. go, sarah, go. how to play guitar; ran ten miles while knitting myself a sweater; jumped out of a plane. finally, i became a ping pong master while recording my debut album. how you ask? with 5-hour energy. i get hours of energy now -- no crash later. wait to see the next five hours. before the tissue, help defend with a wipe. before the cold & flu season, help prevent with lysol. because when you have 10 times more protection
with each hand wash... and kill 99.9% of germs around the house with each spray... those healthy habits start to add up. this season, a good offense is the best defense and lysol has your family covered because that's our mission for health. but may not realize what they can do for your health. we know what it takes to look good on the outside but with 70% of our immune system located in our gut, the core of our health is truly on the inside. that's why i take new trubiotics. it's a daily probiotic that helps in two ways. one helps support digestive health, the other immune health. stay true to your health. new trubiotics. from the makers of one-a-day.
>> intuition, a hunch. no matter what you call it, gut sixth sense. no matter what you call it, gut feelings can be a pretty powerful tool when it comes to making important choices in your life. >> is it better to trust your instinct or intellect? dr. carrie peterson is a contributor to "women's health magazine" and dr. janet taylor is a psychiatrist here in new york city. hi, ladies. >> there's something to this, isn't there? the gut instinct. many of us rely on it. but it's not foolproof. >> well, it's not foolproof, but the thing to remember is that even though we say the gut, it's still your brain. so what's happening is focused through your brain, but it's a matter of saying do i need to make a quick decision and not focus on a list and just make the decision. >> sometimes there's like a physical reaction. let's say someone is walking down the street, and you feel spooked, and your gut tells you i'm not -- i shouldn't stay here, i feel uncomfortable, i should cross the street. should you just follow what is going on there? >> you absolutely should. when there's a situation that you feel in danger, pay
attention to it. the thing is that society has trained us to be polite, so often we ignore those gut feelings. >> why are we rude to one another when we've been trained to be -- >> that's a little different. this is more you don't want to offend someone. you want to make them feel comfortable when you feel very uncomfortable. >> that'part of the whole agenda as well if it's something we've been trained. give them a chance. you don't know who they are. they may be going for a new look. >> if you feel like something is not right, cross that street. you do get physical symptoms. your heart may sweat, your heart may race. there are physical signs. >> sometimes if you -- let's pretend someone has hurt me in the past physically, and i walk down the street and get a bad feeling about someone. i'm used to that, and i'm afraid of more things. sometimes your gut isn't right, is it? >> there's a difference between insight, which is made on those decisions that are in your awareness, you've had a past experience. what we're talking about intuition is something that just
pops up, and it really brings the unconscious to your awareness, and it gives you an opportunity to make a quick decision. hopefully you'll use your intuition, but we're not talking about if you have lost thousands of dollars doing one thing to keep doing that. you have to pay attention to the past, but be willing to just jump in. >> let's pretend you're at the doctor's office, and you don't feel good, and the doctor says, look, it's in your head, you're fine. inside you keep thinking to yourself i don't feel good. what's -- your gut is telling thaw the doctor is wrong, but he or she is the doctor. >> supposedly the expert. >> physicians may overlook certain symptoms, especially if you are a young and healthy woman simply because they may dismiss your fears as paranoia. male physicians can do that. they can attribute it to depression or pms. nobody knows your body like you do, so if you feel your physician is not paying attention to something that you feel you have a hunch is wrong, get a second opinion. >> people say it's paranoia and not intuition. >> if you're not sure if i'm having truly this gut feeling or being a hypochondriac. try to be in tune to your feelings about it. when it's fear, you have more emotionally-charged emotions.
when it's intuition, it's oddly impersonal. >> that's interesting. >> not only that, people who rely on their intuition are more adaptable and go with the flow, whereas those who always have the measure the maximizers tend to be per -fictionists, fictionists, and they can be harder on themselves at the end of a decision. >> yeah. sometimes if you are interviewing someone, let's say, for a job, someone can be very charming, and you can say, wow, i'm really taken with them. i like them. your instinct may tell you -- your intuition may tell you they're a good person, but deep down inside you don't know the layers. sometimes you're off. >> this would be a situation where i would recommend using your head over your gut. because someone's personality may lure you in, remind you of a close friend. you may be more inclined to potentially hire them. however you need to look at their work history, recommendation letters and don't be impulsive with the decision.
>> not saying to not look at manufacturing if you have it in front of you, but sometimes there are times you don't have that information, and it's truly okay to go with what you feel, if with your instinct. >> the times i haven't trusted my gut i've been sorry after. it's there for a reason. >> new year, new you, trust your gut. >> thank you, ladies. >> aren't they pretty? >> they sure are. >> you may want to trust your gut, but i'm not sure you don't want to have one. i don't know what i just said. >> sara is going to show us different ways to feel the burn. oh. right after this. little word ga. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much access geico 24/7. sounds a little too good to be true sir. i'll believe that when pigs fly. ok, did she seriously just say that? geico. just click away with our free mobile app. diarrhea, gas, bloating?

and pointing at the screen instead of click and dragging with a mouse. >> what's he doing? it's karaoke? what's happening? >> he's dancing and the little camera there is monitoring all of his actions. he is dancing. the only thing is for navigating a menu, it's a little difficult. still not quite as easy as pushing buttons, but -- >> at least the kids are moving in front of something and not sitting at it. they're getting some exercise, which i think is awesome. >> that is the truth. >> that's cool. >> i actually have something that's coming new for 2013. it's a camera from samsung. i'm actually going to use you, kathy, as a tripod. if you come stand back here -- >> i have been used for worse. >> i am going to use it, and i'm going to use hand motions to take a picture. >> oh. >> you just took your own picture? >> yeah. hang on. i'm going to try one more time. i can actually use it to see how it's zooming in. i'm going to zoom the lens. >> oh, my gosh. >> i'm framing up my picture. one more time. ah. >> yes, it's -- >> it operates with just your base user interface, and that means you can get in the shot.
normally it works. >> all right. >> our next tech trend is mobile payments. everybody is trying to figure out how to get your mobile phone to be your wallet in a safe and secure way. what we have right now is something that is popping up in some stores called google wallet. this uses a new technology called near field applications. it's not available in all phones. it's limited to the android. it's sort of being slow to catch on. what's coming is this new technology called level up. it's a new app. >> i can see you like. >> i really like it. it's on my phone. now, it knows where you are, so it's going to show me here that i am at the nbc store and then so there is me at the nbc store, and then when i'm ready to pay, i'm just going to wave it in front of this device at my retailer. now it zapped my phone and i paid with my credit card. there's no credit card
information on the app, so it's very secure. >> nobody can scan it. and steal your i.d. >> that's right. that's right. how fun to be able to do that in other places? >> they're catching on with thousands of retailers already. more and more. available for iphones as well as android. okay. >> my phone won't work on that, though? >> you need to replace it. junker. >> we'll talk. >> our next trend is the internet of things. if you haven't heard this term yet, you'll hear a lot of it. it's basically about how physical objects are being armed with wireless sensors that you can talk to, that talk to app and give you information. i think the example we all know right now is the nike plus that goes in your shoe, tells you where you ran and how far. >> right. >> what's coming, brand new from phillips is a system called hue. these are light bulbs that go into your regular lamp, led light bulbs. they last forever. and you can control them with your device. >> what is going on? >> so check this out. not only can you dim them, but
